In a world so completely captivated by social media, one can only wonder the lengths that a person might go in order to reach internet stardom. “Selfie” (Written and Directed by Devin Roberts) is a psychological thriller that explores the sadistic mind of Clark (Mark Lowery) and his scheme to exploit Clare (Yvette Oliver) on social media by any means necessary, even if it means resorting to violence. Featuring original music by Michael Muranaka, “Selfie” is a raw take on the grip that technology has on society and the negative behaviors it can potentially encourage.
